A Portrait

Martin Rünk writes about the work:
Continuing a series of interactive installations that explore old school video games, this time Pilipenko is presenting a mirror installed inside a sleek black frame. Syringes cut in half are positioned sporadically over the surface of the mirror revealing through rectangular openings fragments of a video game monitor hidden under the mirror. The audience is invited to play the game using the controls installed on both sides of the frame. With the image only accessible by looking through the syringes the viewer has a limited overview of the game and has to mentally compile the bigger picture while confronted with their reflection. This installation deals with issues of addictive patterns, of trying to overcome fragmentation and in the end fighting for control over the circumstances.
